o/t- fuel pressure reg on 5.7L Tahoe
this prolly belongs on the chevy forum, but there's never anyone over there....
I just got a call from my pal on a road trip, his 97 tahoe with a 350 wasn't starting. A shop told him it was a bad fuel pressure regulator, which i guess is located inside or under the intake manifold...the shop wants $500 to replace it...BOO!
So he replaces this fuel press. regulator on the side of the road, gets it all back together fine *he thinks*
now come the problems:
1. he says he hears a popping from the throttle body
2. the engine stumbles at first start, then revs to 5000rpm by itself,then it dies.
any ideas out there on this one?
thanks very much
